iris has been telling us about. but it should not impact the visibility. shocking video, just released of an officer pepper spraying a teenager while in the back of a police cruiser. a lot of people are asking, did this officer go too far? dan, a mugshot, the tulsa police officer charged with first degree manslaughter. the question is where is she right now? we have the answers.

but it's still unclear but smart thinking to let someone know, dan. disturbing news to pass along about our national parks. a congressional committee reporting misconduct at all parks including the grand canyon, yosemite, and yellowstone and it includes sexual harassment and bullying. theysay in plan to come up with solutions quickly. 6:18, and let's turn to a weather alert. come to your tv and check out this video. i am seeing this for the first time and let's watch this together. look at the strong winds and rain out of utah where they were just tagged. it doesn't sound like there were any serious injuries, my producers are telling me, but my goodness. look at the strong winds, intense stuff. so when you talk about the strength of mother nature, it doesn't end there.
dangerous flash flooding in the midwest, iowa, minnesota, wisconsin, all trying to dry out. look as that as a strong storm system moves through. some areas received 6" of rain in a matter of hours, less than that as a matter of fact. and check out this, too. the cameras rolling as an -- oh, there she goes. someone will be upset that. over the dam in hatfield, wisconsin. the rain caused water levels to quickly rise up to 3 feet. the boat, like the ss minnow now, and the current swept it away. it's unclear how many boats were damaged. someone will be upset about that, but i like to tell the stories because nobody was injured, iris. that's the good news, chris, and we had heavy downpours in our state yesterday but now, as skies are
lingering moisture over the phoenix metro and that's creating the fog, so fog over the valley. as you are driving from this, visibility should not be impacted too much. this is the view from the value cam that shows it gloomy. when you step outside, temperatures in the 60s to low 70s all across the valley. so feeling comfortable this morning and across the state, colder up north, down in the 30s in spots like flagstaff. it will be a gorgeous day today as we bring in dr i keep showing you the surface moisture imagery because every time we go to it you can see the drier air pushing further and further east and it will eventually replace the moisture over the valley and we will feel lower humidity this afternoon. and our rain chance is done for the phoenix metro. but a few showers in the southeast this morning before we clear out the rain as we go through the day today. tonight, nice and mostly clear and tomorrow, a similar setup
so maybe make weekend plans to be outdoors especially in the morning. now, temperatures will warm into the 80s, but you can see how gradual of a warm up it will be. by lunchtime, still only in the low 80s before we hit the high of 86. the 7-day forecast, temperatures will warm into the 90s through the weekend and rain chances return next week. we'll talk more on that and the cool temperatures you'll feel tonight in just minutes. i told you minutes ago, we were hearing of a crash loop 202 at 24th street. it's right near the loop 2 very 2 ramp and we don't have a good vantage point of this crash. and it looks like they're restricting the off-ramp. looks like they are not turning left but right. and we have to have a crew out there because it looks like they are closing the roads in the area.
unfortunate, not friday light and the delays begin and take you to the mini stack. east valley drivers, very quiet all morning along along the 60 and 101 and 202. a crash earlier at alma school and elliot and it looks like it's in the clearing stages. i will have more for you on a new crash i'm hearing on state route 51 next. a 100-mi ends with a suspect in the am/pm. look at them moving the cameras, but it ended peacefully. taxpayers, we will be paying a hefty salary even though the job is no longer
super lice has gone back to school as the north valley charter school has 77 cases. it's spreading fast and all the parents in the school have gotten a letter stating that the kids will be sent home if they are infected. super lice is very difficult to beat as experts say that over the counter treatment for shampoos don't work so well.
an >> there is no quick cure, no shampoo, no pills. you have to manually remove every single nit from the hair to get rid of head lice. >> oh, moms and dads, you can do that but the treatment centers will cost around $100. and a brand new big green box on mill satisfy all about to improve visibility and safety for bikers. so the bike box just installed at 10th and mill them a priority at the stoplight. drivers, stop at the line before the green box and let bicyclists fill in the space between the cars in the intersection. the city of tempe hopes this will prevent crashes. >> we refer to them as a more vulnerable user and don't have the luxury of a car. by having the vacation and allowing them to move in the front vats a safer experience for the bicycle.
friendly. you could see more of them popping up in tempe. mallory next at 6:30, a video causing massive protests, but what police see and what keith scott's families see are two different narratives. and it's a $13 billion deal, some of the largest hotels in the valley get a new owner. so what that means for you, the customer, coming up. brake lights
on the 10 in the west valley and a crash off morning drive. the smart route next. and i'm looking at thick clouds over the superstitions,
the president is making his first public reaction and it's an exclusive you won't see anywhere else. forget the super bowl. forget about the super brawl. it's not a fight but a debate. what the candidates are doing to prepare. and it's fall, iris. i know. this is what happens when skies clear out quickly with moisture out there. we get the fog but it's not having a major impact on the visibility and the drive into work. valley look not so pretty as it looks hazy out there. no major impact as you are driving into work. a slight chance for a shower in the far southeastern part of the valley. drier air will take over, it's already drying thought morning and will continue to dry out in the afternoon. cool temperatures on the walk from the bus stop and a pleasant afternoon. you might want to make park
school. we'll talk about your weekend forecast in a few minutes. mallory? and as you said, the fog won't impact the morning drive but a couple of crashes will. and this is route 202 westbound at 24th street but in the past couple seconds, dps is blocking the exits. you will not be able to use that. and it sounds like the crash is northbound side of traffic. 32nd street will get you around it, whreght or side streets or off the freeway. if that is part of your route, you are just fine. delays on the 10 and a crash on the 101 in the north valley. i'll map that out coming up. mallory, while you were talking i got a new update from the phoenix police department regarding a suspect who took
going more than 100 miles per hour on a high-speed chase which led to a barricade at a convenience store. it turns out that 20-year-old jesse cisneros went into the convenience store because he was wanted on felony charges. listen to what our crews were told on the scene. >> gentlemen, want to let you know that your lives are in danger. >> yeah. telling everyone to get back and get out thereof because according to officers, was armed with a rifle. and he was at the am/pm at 32nd and cactus. the officers moved the cameras because the guy was inside possibly watching the movement of the s.w.a.t. team, and it was those officers who talked him into giving himself up, dan. we have calls into police to find out more about two late-

police doing the right way, and once in a while, you see folks doing it the wrong way. looting and breaking glass, those things are not going to advance the cause. >> police chief is saying those are not protesters but criminals. you can catch the entire interview in half an hour. dan, you may see picketers at sky harbor as we look live at the airport. abc15's allison rodriguez is live there with more. allison? >> reporter: the aircraft mechanics fraternal organization will be up and down this area right here. who are they going to be picketing against? they are not happy with southwest airlines where we are right here on terminal 4. the local group is trying to spread the word and have every member show up.

locations? abc15 justin pazera has more. justin? >> reporter: the president of marriott was up bright and early and chatting about the $13 billion merger. first of all, for the employees, he said 90%, they will not see anything different but the top-level officials, the top 10%, they may see shift. for instance, he said they don't need two ceoss. if you are in the rewards program, this same. if you are a platinum member in starwood, you'll be platinum at marriott. and this is the largest hotel chain in the world, and they believe that will give them more negotiating power in places like expedia and priceline. but this merger does link some of the big hotels in the valley, the w, the phoenician resort. that is affecting them and they have a new owner this morning.
